NBA Round Up: The Magic Are Back?

By: 04.20.11

Boston Celtics 96, New York Knicks 93

Say hi to your mom for me.

A buddy of mine asked me last night, “If you’re so convinced that David Stern has an agenda and the NBA is fixed then why are the Knicks down 2-0?” While that’s a great question, I won’t answer it until they’ve played Game 3 because I think the tables will turn when these teams head to Madison Square Garden. Call it a hunch, but I can’t imagine the Knicks losing another close game on the league’s biggest stage. We might even see some questionable officiating, but that’s a stretch. *fart noise*

So let’s ask ourselves, what was the highlight of this game?

A) Rajon Rondo dropping 30 points and proving again that he is without a doubt the best point guard in the league.*
B) Mike D’Antoni basically calling this game a moral victory and making me want to fire him into the sun on a rocket.
C) Carmelo Anthony couldn’t play defense against a girl’s middle school team.

That’s an obvious answer, of course, but while LaLa’s husband is being praised for scoring 42 of his team’s 96 points, he’s really not getting enough credit for being one of the most lethargic players on the court at any time. Keep in mind, I only caught glimpses of this game in between ordering Three Olives bombs and cursing Gilbert Arenas’ name, but I can recall at least 5 times that I asked someone: “Does this guy even give a sh*t?”

And the quick and easy answer is Yes, and he’s going to win in Game 3 and we will praise his efforts because he is rumored to be a superstar. So they say.

(P.S. – Quote of the game: “The Celtics didn’t do anything special. They won two games on their home court. Now it’s our turn to go to our home court and try to do the same thing.” – Carmelo Anthony. Someone want to explain to Melo that he’s two non-special performances away from a summer in the Hamptons?)

*Arguable, I know. But for as much as I dislike the Celtics, I think it speaks volumes about my praise for little RuPaul.
